Manage your licence

When you have a real estate licence, you need to update any details that change within 10 working days of the change occurring. You need to renew your licence every year, complete 20 hours of study and conduct yourself professionally.

Update any details that change

We hold your details on the public register. If anything changes, for example, your contact details, the agency you work for or your eligibility to work in real estate, please tell us within 10 days.

Renew your licence every year

Your real estate licence expires every 12 months. To continue to work in real estate, you need to renew it each year. It is your responsibility to ensure you renew on, or before your expiry date. We send a reminder when your licence is due to expire, so please keep your contact details current.
